The award-winning TRIOS® is a wireless intraoral scanner that’s easier to use, yet more accurate than traditional bulky x-ray scanners. It allows us to take digital impressions of your teeth without the need for impression materials to be inserted in your mouth. Because of its small size and increased functionality, this technique enhances patient experience, reduces chair-time, and unlocks new treatment opportunities. TRIOS® ensures that our procedures for getting @Invisalign, crowns, bridges or retainers, is much more comfortable and convenient – ensuring optimal comfort for patients with reduced chair time.
Digital tools for better treatment
TRIOS® scans produce fully digital HD color photos with shade measurement to enhance details, and an intra-oral camera so you don’t need one on the side. TRIOS® shade measurement was found to be more reliable than the human eye in a recent joint university study. (Gotfredsen et al., April 2015).
Why use an intra-oral scanner?
Speed and accuracy. It takes 5 minutes to scan a patient, that’s it! There is no impression material used, there is no sitting around waiting for the PVS to dry, no gagging, no mess. There’s also no need for powder and the accuracy is superior to traditional impressions.
Are intra-oral scanners accurate?
Studies have documented that digital impressions improve clinical results and reduce the need for restoration adjustments and remakes. So the accuracy of TRIOS® and its unique features not only improve our performance but make us much more efficient as well.
